Juz' 19 - Translation Shakir

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ لَا يَرْجُونَ لِقَاءَنَا لَوْلَا أُنْزِلَ عَلَيْنَا الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَوْ نَرَى رَبَّنَا لَقَدِ اسْتَكْبَرُوا فِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ وَعَتَوْا عُتُوًّا كَبِيرًا ﴿۲۱﴾
And those who do not hope for Our meeting, say: Why have not angels been sent down upon us, or (why) do we not see our Lord? Now certainly they are too proud of themselves and have revolted in great revolt (21)
يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ الْمَلَائِكَةَ لَا بُشْرَى يَوْمَئِذٍ لِلْمُجْرِمِينَ وَيَقُولُونَ حِجْرًا مَحْجُورًا ﴿۲۲﴾
On the day when they shall see the angels, there shall be no joy on that day for the guilty, and they shall say: It is a forbidden thing totally prohibited (22)
وَقَدِمْنَا إِلَى مَا عَمِلُوا مِنْ عَمَلٍ فَجَعَلْنَاهُ هَبَاءً مَنْثُورًا ﴿۲۳﴾
And We will proceed to what they have done of deeds, so We shall render them as scattered floating dust (23)
أَصْحَابُ الْجَنَّةِ يَوْمَئِذٍ خَيْرٌ مُسْتَقَرًّا وَأَحْسَنُ مَقِيلًا ﴿۲۴﴾
The dwellers of the garden shall on that day be in a better abiding-place and a better resting-place (24)
وَيَوْمَ تَشَقَّقُ السَّمَاءُ بِالْغَمَامِ وَنُزِّلَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ تَنْزِيلًا ﴿۲۵﴾
And on the day when the heaven shall burst asunder with the clouds, and the angels shall be sent down descending (in ranks) (25)
الْمُلْكُ يَوْمَئِذٍ الْحَقُّ لِلرَّحْمَنِ وَكَانَ يَوْمًا عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ عَسِيرًا ﴿۲۶﴾
The kingdom on that day shall rightly belong to the Beneficent Allah, and a hard day shall it be for the unbelievers (26)
وَيَوْمَ يَعَضُّ الظَّالِمُ عَلَى يَدَيْهِ يَقُولُ يَا لَيْتَنِي اتَّخَذْتُ مَعَ الرَّسُولِ سَبِيلًا ﴿۲۷﴾
And the day when the unjust one shall bite his hands saying: O! would that I had taken a way with the Messenger (27)
يَا وَيْلَتَى لَيْتَنِي لَمْ أَتَّخِذْ فُلَانًا خَلِيلًا ﴿۲۸﴾
O woe is me! would that I had not taken such a one for a friend ! (28)
لَقَدْ أَضَلَّنِي عَنِ الذِّكْرِ بَعْدَ إِذْ جَاءَنِي وَكَانَ الشَّيْطَانُ لِلْإِنْسَانِ خَذُولًا ﴿۲۹﴾
Certainly he led me astray from the reminder after it had come to me; and the Shaitan fails to aid man (29)
وَقَالَ الرَّسُولُ يَا رَبِّ إِنَّ قَوْمِي اتَّخَذُوا هَذَا الْقُرْآنَ مَهْجُورًا ﴿۳۰﴾
And the Messenger cried out: O my Lord! surely my people have treated this Quran as a forsaken thing (30)
وَكَذَلِكَ جَعَلْنَا لِكُلِّ نَبِيٍّ عَدُوًّا مِنَ الْمُجْرِمِينَ وَكَفَى بِرَبِّكَ هَادِيًا وَنَصِيرًا ﴿۳۱﴾
And thus have We made for every prophet an enemy from among the sinners and sufficient is your Lord as a Guide and a Helper (31)
وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَوْلَا نُزِّلَ عَلَيْهِ الْقُرْآنُ جُمْلَةً وَاحِدَةً كَذَلِكَ لِنُثَبِّتَ بِهِ فُؤَادَكَ وَرَتَّلْنَاهُ تَرْتِيلًا ﴿۳۲﴾
And those who disbelieve say: Why has not the Quran been revealed to him all at once? Thus, that We may strengthen your heart by it and We have arranged it well in arranging (32)
وَلَا يَأْتُونَكَ بِمَثَلٍ إِلَّا جِئْنَاكَ بِالْحَقِّ وَأَحْسَنَ تَفْسِيرًا ﴿۳۳﴾
And they shall not bring to you any argument, but We have brought to you (one) with truth and best in significance (33)
الَّذِينَ يُحْشَرُونَ عَلَى وُجُوهِهِمْ إِلَى جَهَنَّمَ أُولَئِكَ شَرٌّ مَكَانًا وَأَضَلُّ سَبِيلًا ﴿۳۴﴾
(As for) those who shall be gathered upon their faces to hell, they are in a worse plight and straying farther away from the path (34)
وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا مُوسَى الْكِتَابَ وَجَعَلْنَا مَعَهُ أَخَاهُ هَارُونَ وَزِيرًا ﴿۳۵﴾
And certainly We gave Musa the Book and We appointed with him his brother Haroun an aider (35)
فَقُلْنَا اذْهَبَا إِلَى الْقَوْمِ الَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا فَدَمَّرْنَاهُمْ تَدْمِيرًا ﴿۳۶﴾
Then We said: Go you both to the people who rejected Our communications; so We destroyed them with utter destruction (36)
وَقَوْمَ نُوحٍ لَمَّا كَذَّبُوا الرُّسُلَ أَغْرَقْنَاهُمْ وَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ لِلنَّاسِ آيَةً وَأَعْتَدْنَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا ﴿۳۷﴾
And the people of Nuh, when they rejected the messengers, We drowned them, and made them a sign for men, and We have prepared a painful punishment for the unjust; (37)
وَعَادًا وَثَمُودَ وَأَصْحَابَ الرَّسِّ وَقُرُونًا بَيْنَ ذَلِكَ كَثِيرًا ﴿۳۸﴾
And Ad and Samood and the dwellers of the Rass and many generations between them (38)
وَكُلًّا ضَرَبْنَا لَهُ الْأَمْثَالَ وَكُلًّا تَبَّرْنَا تَتْبِيرًا ﴿۳۹﴾
And to every one We gave examples and every one did We destroy with utter destruction (39)
وَلَقَدْ أَتَوْا عَلَى الْقَرْيَةِ الَّتِي أُمْطِرَتْ مَطَرَ السَّوْءِ أَفَلَمْ يَكُونُوا يَرَوْنَهَا بَلْ كَانُوا لَا يَرْجُونَ نُشُورًا ﴿۴۰﴾
And certainly they have (often) passed by the town on which was rained an evil rain; did they not then see it? Nay! they did not hope to be raised again (40)
وَإِذَا رَأَوْكَ إِنْ يَتَّخِذُونَكَ إِلَّا هُزُوًا أَهَذَا الَّذِي بَعَثَ اللَّهُ رَسُولًا ﴿۴۱﴾
And when they see you, they do not take you for aught but a mockery: Is this he whom Allah has raised to be an messenger? (41)
إِنْ كَادَ لَيُضِلُّنَا عَنْ آلِهَتِنَا لَوْلَا أَنْ صَبَرْنَا عَلَيْهَا وَسَوْفَ يَعْلَمُونَ حِينَ يَرَوْنَ الْعَذَابَ مَنْ أَضَلُّ سَبِيلًا ﴿۴۲﴾
He had well-nigh led us astray from our gods had we not adhered to them patiently! And they will know, when they see the punishment, who is straying farther off from the path (42)
أَرَأَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلَهَهُ هَوَاهُ أَفَأَنْتَ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِ وَكِيلًا ﴿۴۳﴾
Have you seen him who takes his low desires for his god? Will you then be a protector over him? (43)
أَمْ تَحْسَبُ أَنَّ أَكْثَرَهُمْ يَسْمَعُونَ أَوْ يَعْقِلُونَ إِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا كَالْأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ سَبِيلًا ﴿۴۴﴾
Or do you think that most of them do hear or understand? They are nothing but as cattle; nay, they are straying farther off from the path (44)
أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى رَبِّكَ كَيْفَ مَدَّ الظِّلَّ وَلَوْ شَاءَ لَجَعَلَهُ سَاكِنًا ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَا الشَّمْسَ عَلَيْهِ دَلِيلًا ﴿۴۵﴾
Have you not considered (the work of) your Lord, how He extends the shade? And if He had pleased He would certainly have made it stationary; then We have made the sun an indication of it (45)
ثُمَّ قَبَضْنَاهُ إِلَيْنَا قَبْضًا يَسِيرًا ﴿۴۶﴾
Then We take it to Ourselves, taking little by little (46)
وَهُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ لَكُمُ اللَّيْلَ لِبَاسًا وَالنَّوْمَ سُبَاتًا وَجَعَلَ النَّهَارَ نُشُورًا ﴿۴۷﴾
And He it is Who made the night a covering for you, and the sleep a rest, and He made the day to rise up again (47)
وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ الرِّيَاحَ بُشْرًا بَيْنَ يَدَيْ رَحْمَتِهِ وَأَنْزَلْنَا مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً طَهُورًا ﴿۴۸﴾
And He it is Who sends the winds as good news before His mercy; and We send down pure water from the cloud, (48)
لِنُحْيِيَ بِهِ بَلْدَةً مَيْتًا وَنُسْقِيَهُ مِمَّا خَلَقْنَا أَنْعَامًا وَأَنَاسِيَّ كَثِيرًا ﴿۴۹﴾
That We may give life thereby to a dead land and give it for drink, out of what We have created, to cattle and many people (49)
وَلَقَدْ صَرَّفْنَاهُ بَيْنَهُمْ لِيَذَّكَّرُوا فَأَبَى أَكْثَرُ النَّاسِ إِلَّا كُفُورًا ﴿۵۰﴾
And certainly We have repeated this to them that they may be mindful, but the greater number of men do not consent to aught except denying (50)
وَلَوْ شِئْنَا لَبَعَثْنَا فِي كُلِّ قَرْيَةٍ نَذِيرًا ﴿۵۱﴾
And if We had pleased We would certainly have raised a warner in every town (51)
فَلَا تُطِعِ الْكَافِرِينَ وَجَاهِدْهُمْ بِهِ جِهَادًا كَبِيرًا ﴿۵۲﴾
So do not follow the unbelievers, and strive against them a mighty striving with it (52)
وَهُوَ الَّذِي مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ هَذَا عَذْبٌ فُرَاتٌ وَهَذَا مِلْحٌ أُجَاجٌ وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَهُمَا بَرْزَخًا وَحِجْرًا مَحْجُورًا ﴿۵۳﴾
And He it is Who has made two seas to flow freely, the one sweet that subdues thirst by its sweetness, and the other salt that burns by its saltness; and between the two He has made a barrier and inviolable obstruction (53)
وَهُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ مِنَ الْمَاءِ بَشَرًا فَجَعَلَهُ نَسَبًا وَصِهْرًا وَكَانَ رَبُّكَ قَدِيرًا ﴿۵۴﴾
And He it is Who has created man from the water, then He has made for him blood relationship and marriage relationship, and your Lord is powerful (54)
وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يَنْفَعُهُمْ وَلَا يَضُرُّهُمْ وَكَانَ الْكَافِرُ عَلَى رَبِّهِ ظَهِيرًا ﴿۵۵﴾
And they serve besides Allah that which neither profits them nor causes them harm; and the unbeliever is a partisan against his Lord (55)
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا مُبَشِّرًا وَنَذِيرًا ﴿۵۶﴾
And We have not sent you but as a giver of good news and as a warner (56)
قُلْ مَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ إِلَّا مَنْ شَاءَ أَنْ يَتَّخِذَ إِلَى رَبِّهِ سَبِيلًا ﴿۵۷﴾
Say: I do not ask you aught in return except that he who will, may take the way to his Lord (57)
وَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى الْحَيِّ الَّذِي لَا يَمُوتُ وَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِهِ وَكَفَى بِهِ بِذُنُوبِ عِبَادِهِ خَبِيرًا ﴿۵۸﴾
And rely on the Ever-living Who dies not, and celebrate His praise; and Sufficient is He as being aware of the faults of His servants, (58)
الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا فِي سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ اسْتَوَى عَلَى الْعَرْشِ الرَّحْمَنُ فَاسْأَلْ بِهِ خَبِيرًا ﴿۵۹﴾
Who created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six periods, and He is firmly established on the throne of authority; the Beneficent Allah, so ask respecting it one aware (59)
وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ اسْجُدُوا لِلرَّحْمَنِ قَالُوا وَمَا الرَّحْمَنُ أَنَسْجُدُ لِمَا تَأْمُرُنَا وَزَادَهُمْ نُفُورًا ﴿۶۰﴾
And when it is said to them: Prostrate to the Beneficent Allah, they say: And what is the Allah of beneficence? Shall we prostrate to what you bid us? And it adds to their aversion (60)
تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ فِي السَّمَاءِ بُرُوجًا وَجَعَلَ فِيهَا سِرَاجًا وَقَمَرًا مُنِيرًا ﴿۶۱﴾
Blessed is He Who made the constellations in the heavens and made therein a lamp and a shining moon (61)
وَهُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ اللَّيْلَ وَالنَّهَارَ خِلْفَةً لِمَنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يَذَّكَّرَ أَوْ أَرَادَ شُكُورًا ﴿۶۲﴾
And He it is Who made the night and the day to follow each other for him who desires to be mindful or desires to be thankful (62)
وَعِبَادُ الرَّحْمَنِ الَّذِينَ يَمْشُونَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ هَوْنًا وَإِذَا خَاطَبَهُمُ الْجَاهِلُونَ قَالُوا سَلَامًا ﴿۶۳﴾
And the servants of the Beneficent Allah are they who walk on the earth in humbleness, and when the ignorant address them, they say: Peace (63)
وَالَّذِينَ يَبِيتُونَ لِرَبِّهِمْ سُجَّدًا وَقِيَامًا ﴿۶۴﴾
And they who pass the night prostrating themselves before their Lord and standing (64)
وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا اصْرِفْ عَنَّا عَذَابَ جَهَنَّمَ إِنَّ عَذَابَهَا كَانَ غَرَامًا ﴿۶۵﴾
And they who say: O our Lord! turn away from us the punishment of hell, surely the punishment thereof is a lasting (65)
إِنَّهَا سَاءَتْ مُسْتَقَرًّا وَمُقَامًا ﴿۶۶﴾
Surely it is an evil abode and (evil) place to stay (66)
وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا أَنْفَقُوا لَمْ يُسْرِفُوا وَلَمْ يَقْتُرُوا وَكَانَ بَيْنَ ذَلِكَ قَوَامًا ﴿۶۷﴾
And they who when they spend, are neither extravagant nor parsimonious, and (keep) between these the just mean (67)
وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَدْعُونَ مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَهًا آخَرَ وَلَا يَقْتُلُونَ النَّفْسَ الَّتِي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ وَلَا يَزْنُونَ وَمَنْ يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ يَلْقَ أَثَامًا ﴿۶۸﴾
And they who do not call upon another god with Allah and do not slay the soul, which Allah has forbidden except in the requirements of justice, and (who) do not commit fornication and he who does this shall find a requital of sin; (68)
يُضَاعَفْ لَهُ الْعَذَابُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَيَخْلُدْ فِيهِ مُهَانًا ﴿۶۹﴾
The punishment shall be doubled to him on the day of resurrection, and he shall abide therein in abasement; (69)
إِلَّا مَنْ تَابَ وَآمَنَ وَعَمِلَ عَمَلًا صَالِحًا فَأُولَئِكَ يُبَدِّلُ اللَّهُ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ حَسَنَاتٍ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا ﴿۷۰﴾
Except him who repents and believes and does a good deed; so these are they of whom Allah changes the evil deeds to good ones; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful (70)
وَمَنْ تَابَ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَإِنَّهُ يَتُوبُ إِلَى اللَّهِ مَتَابًا ﴿۷۱﴾
And whoever repents and does good, he surely turns to Allah a (goodly) turning (71)
وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَشْهَدُونَ الزُّورَ وَإِذَا مَرُّوا بِاللَّغْوِ مَرُّوا كِرَامًا ﴿۷۲﴾
And they who do not bear witness to what is false, and when they pass by what is vain, they pass by nobly (72)
وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِّرُوا بِآيَاتِ رَبِّهِمْ لَمْ يَخِرُّوا عَلَيْهَا صُمًّا وَعُمْيَانًا ﴿۷۳﴾
And they who, when reminded of the communications of their Lord, do not fall down thereat deaf and blind (73)
وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا ﴿۷۴﴾
And they who say: O our Lord! grant us in our wives and our offspring the joy of our eyes, and make us guides to those who guard (against evil) (74)
أُولَئِكَ يُجْزَوْنَ الْغُرْفَةَ بِمَا صَبَرُوا وَيُلَقَّوْنَ فِيهَا تَحِيَّةً وَسَلَامًا ﴿۷۵﴾
These shall be rewarded with high places because they were patient, and shall be met therein with greetings and salutations (75)
خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا حَسُنَتْ مُسْتَقَرًّا وَمُقَامًا ﴿۷۶﴾
Abiding therein; goodly the abode and the resting-place (76)
قُلْ مَا يَعْبَأُ بِكُمْ رَبِّي لَوْلَا دُعَاؤُكُمْ فَقَدْ كَذَّبْتُمْ فَسَوْفَ يَكُونُ لِزَامًا ﴿۷۷﴾
Say: My Lord would not care for you were it not for your prayer; but you have indeed rejected (the truth), so that which shall cleave shall come (77)
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
طسم ﴿۱﴾
Ta Sin Mim (1)
تِلْكَ آيَاتُ الْكِتَابِ الْمُبِينِ ﴿۲﴾
These are the verses of the Book that makes (things) clear (2)
لَعَلَّكَ بَاخِعٌ نَفْسَكَ أَلَّا يَكُونُوا مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۳﴾
Perhaps you will kill yourself with grief because they do not believe (3)
إِنْ نَشَأْ نُنَزِّلْ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ آيَةً فَظَلَّتْ أَعْنَاقُهُمْ لَهَا خَاضِعِينَ ﴿۴﴾
If We please, We should send down upon them a sign from the heaven so that their necks should stoop to it (4)
وَمَا يَأْتِيهِمْ مِنْ ذِكْرٍ مِنَ الرَّحْمَنِ مُحْدَثٍ إِلَّا كَانُوا عَنْهُ مُعْرِضِينَ ﴿۵﴾
And there does not come to them a new reminder from the Beneficent Allah but they turn aside from it (5)
فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوا فَسَيَأْتِيهِمْ أَنْبَاءُ مَا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ ﴿۶﴾
So they have indeed rejected (the truth), therefore the news of that which they mock shall soon come to them (6)
أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الْأَرْضِ كَمْ أَنْبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍ كَرِيمٍ ﴿۷﴾
Do they not see the earth, how many of every noble kind We have caused to grow in it? (7)
إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۸﴾
Most surely there is a sign in that, but most of them will not believe (8)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿۹﴾
And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful (9)
وَإِذْ نَادَى رَبُّكَ مُوسَى أَنِ ائْتِ الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ ﴿۱۰﴾
And when your Lord called out to Musa, saying: Go to the unjust people, (10)
قَوْمَ فِرْعَوْنَ أَلَا يَتَّقُونَ ﴿۱۱﴾
The people of Firon: Will they not guard (against evil)? (11)
قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّي أَخَافُ أَنْ يُكَذِّبُونِ ﴿۱۲﴾
He said: O my Lord! surely I fear that they will reject me; (12)
وَيَضِيقُ صَدْرِي وَلَا يَنْطَلِقُ لِسَانِي فَأَرْسِلْ إِلَى هَارُونَ ﴿۱۳﴾
And by breast straitens, and my tongue is not eloquent, therefore send Thou to Haroun (to help me); (13)
وَلَهُمْ عَلَيَّ ذَنْبٌ فَأَخَافُ أَنْ يَقْتُلُونِ ﴿۱۴﴾
And they have a crime against me, therefore I fear that they may slay me (14)
قَالَ كَلَّا فَاذْهَبَا بِآيَاتِنَا إِنَّا مَعَكُمْ مُسْتَمِعُونَ ﴿۱۵﴾
He said: By no means, so go you both with Our signs; surely We are with you, hearing; (15)
فَأْتِيَا فِرْعَوْنَ فَقُولَا إِنَّا رَسُولُ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۱۶﴾
Then come to Firon and say: Surely we are the messengers of the Lord of the worlds: (16)
أَنْ أَرْسِلْ مَعَنَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ ﴿۱۷﴾
Then send with us the children of Israel (17)
قَالَ أَلَمْ نُرَبِّكَ فِينَا وَلِيدًا وَلَبِثْتَ فِينَا مِنْ عُمُرِكَ سِنِينَ ﴿۱۸﴾
(Firon) said: Did we not bring you up as a child among us, and you tarried among us for (many) years of your life? (18)
وَفَعَلْتَ فَعْلَتَكَ الَّتِي فَعَلْتَ وَأَنْتَ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ ﴿۱۹﴾
And you did (that) deed of yours which you did, and you are one of the ungrateful (19)
قَالَ فَعَلْتُهَا إِذًا وَأَنَا مِنَ الضَّالِّينَ ﴿۲۰﴾
He said: I did it then while I was of those unable to see the right course; (20)
فَفَرَرْتُ مِنْكُمْ لَمَّا خِفْتُكُمْ فَوَهَبَ لِي رَبِّي حُكْمًا وَجَعَلَنِي مِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ ﴿۲۱﴾
So I fled from you when I feared you, then my Lord granted me wisdom and made me of the messengers; (21)
وَتِلْكَ نِعْمَةٌ تَمُنُّهَا عَلَيَّ أَنْ عَبَّدْتَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ ﴿۲۲﴾
And is it a favor of which you remind me that you have enslaved the children of Israel? (22)
قَالَ فِرْعَوْنُ وَمَا رَبُّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۲۳﴾
Firon said: And what is the Lord of the worlds? (23)
قَالَ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُوقِنِينَ ﴿۲۴﴾
He said: The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you would be sure (24)
قَالَ لِمَنْ حَوْلَهُ أَلَا تَسْتَمِعُونَ ﴿۲۵﴾
(Firon) said to those around him: Do you not hear? (25)
قَالَ رَبُّكُمْ وَرَبُّ آبَائِكُمُ الْأَوَّلِينَ ﴿۲۶﴾
He said: Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old (26)
قَالَ إِنَّ رَسُولَكُمُ الَّذِي أُرْسِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ لَمَجْنُونٌ ﴿۲۷﴾
Said he: Most surely your Messenger who is sent to you is mad (27)
قَالَ رَبُّ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْمَغْرِبِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ ﴿۲۸﴾
He said: The Lord of the east and the west and what is between them, if you understand (28)
قَالَ لَئِنِ اتَّخَذْتَ إِلَهًا غَيْرِي لَأَجْعَلَنَّكَ مِنَ الْمَسْجُونِينَ ﴿۲۹﴾
Said he: If you will take a god besides me, I will most certainly make you one of the imprisoned (29)
قَالَ أَوَلَوْ جِئْتُكَ بِشَيْءٍ مُبِينٍ ﴿۳۰﴾
He said: What! even if I bring to you something manifest? (30)
قَالَ فَأْتِ بِهِ إِنْ كُنْتَ مِنَ الصَّادِقِينَ ﴿۳۱﴾
Said he: Bring it then, if you are of the truthful ones (31)
فَأَلْقَى عَصَاهُ فَإِذَا هِيَ ثُعْبَانٌ مُبِينٌ ﴿۳۲﴾
So he cast down his rod, and lo! it was an obvious serpent, (32)
وَنَزَعَ يَدَهُ فَإِذَا هِيَ بَيْضَاءُ لِلنَّاظِرِينَ ﴿۳۳﴾
And he drew forth his hand, and lo! it appeared white to the onlookers (33)
قَالَ لِلْمَلَإِ حَوْلَهُ إِنَّ هَذَا لَسَاحِرٌ عَلِيمٌ ﴿۳۴﴾
(Firon) said to the chiefs around him: Most surely this is a skillful magician, (34)
يُرِيدُ أَنْ يُخْرِجَكُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِكُمْ بِسِحْرِهِ فَمَاذَا تَأْمُرُونَ ﴿۳۵﴾
Who desires to turn you out of your land with his magic; what is it then that you advise? (35)
قَالُوا أَرْجِهْ وَأَخَاهُ وَابْعَثْ فِي الْمَدَائِنِ حَاشِرِينَ ﴿۳۶﴾
They said: Give him and his brother respite and send heralds into the cities (36)
يَأْتُوكَ بِكُلِّ سَحَّارٍ عَلِيمٍ ﴿۳۷﴾
That they should bring to you every skillful magician (37)
فَجُمِعَ السَّحَرَةُ لِمِيقَاتِ يَوْمٍ مَعْلُومٍ ﴿۳۸﴾
So the magicians were gathered together at the appointed time on the fixed day, (38)
وَقِيلَ لِلنَّاسِ هَلْ أَنْتُمْ مُجْتَمِعُونَ ﴿۳۹﴾
And it was said to the people: Will you gather together? (39)
لَعَلَّنَا نَتَّبِعُ السَّحَرَةَ إِنْ كَانُوا هُمُ الْغَالِبِينَ ﴿۴۰﴾
Haply we may follow the magicians, if they are the vanquishers (40)
فَلَمَّا جَاءَ السَّحَرَةُ قَالُوا لِفِرْعَوْنَ أَئِنَّ لَنَا لَأَجْرًا إِنْ كُنَّا نَحْنُ الْغَالِبِينَ ﴿۴۱﴾
And when the magicians came, they said to Firon: Shall we get a reward if we are the vanquishers? (41)
قَالَ نَعَمْ وَإِنَّكُمْ إِذًا لَمِنَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ ﴿۴۲﴾
He said: Yes, and surely you will then be of those who are made near (42)
قَالَ لَهُمْ مُوسَى أَلْقُوا مَا أَنْتُمْ مُلْقُونَ ﴿۴۳﴾
Musa said to them: Cast what you are going to cast (43)
فَأَلْقَوْا حِبَالَهُمْ وَعِصِيَّهُمْ وَقَالُوا بِعِزَّةِ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّا لَنَحْنُ الْغَالِبُونَ ﴿۴۴﴾
So they cast down their cords and their rods and said: By Firon's power, we shall most surely be victorious (44)
فَأَلْقَى مُوسَى عَصَاهُ فَإِذَا هِيَ تَلْقَفُ مَا يَأْفِكُونَ ﴿۴۵﴾
Then Musa cast down his staff and lo! it swallowed up the lies they told (45)
فَأُلْقِيَ السَّحَرَةُ سَاجِدِينَ ﴿۴۶﴾
And the magicians were thrown down prostrate; (46)
قَالُوا آمَنَّا بِرَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۴۷﴾
They said: We believe in the Lord of the worlds: (47)
رَبِّ مُوسَى وَهَارُونَ ﴿۴۸﴾
The Lord of Musa and Haroun (48)
قَالَ آمَنْتُمْ لَهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ آذَنَ لَكُمْ إِنَّهُ لَكَبِيرُكُمُ الَّذِي عَلَّمَكُمُ السِّحْرَ فَلَسَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ لَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُمْ مِنْ خِلَافٍ وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ ﴿۴۹﴾
Said he: You believe in him before I give you permission; most surely he is the chief of you who taught you the magic, so you shall know: certainly I will cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and certainly I will crucify you all (49)
قَالُوا لَا ضَيْرَ إِنَّا إِلَى رَبِّنَا مُنْقَلِبُونَ ﴿۵۰﴾
They said: No harm; surely to our Lord we go back; (50)
إِنَّا نَطْمَعُ أَنْ يَغْفِرَ لَنَا رَبُّنَا خَطَايَانَا أَنْ كُنَّا أَوَّلَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۵۱﴾
Surely we hope that our Lord will forgive us our wrongs because we are the first of the believers (51)
وَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَى مُوسَى أَنْ أَسْرِ بِعِبَادِي إِنَّكُمْ مُتَّبَعُونَ ﴿۵۲﴾
And We revealed to Musa, saying: Go away with My servants travelling by night, surely you will be pursued (52)
فَأَرْسَلَ فِرْعَوْنُ فِي الْمَدَائِنِ حَاشِرِينَ ﴿۵۳﴾
So Firon sent heralds into the cities; (53)
إِنَّ هَؤُلَاءِ لَشِرْذِمَةٌ قَلِيلُونَ ﴿۵۴﴾
Most surely these are a small company; (54)
وَإِنَّهُمْ لَنَا لَغَائِظُونَ ﴿۵۵﴾
And most surely they have enraged us; (55)
وَإِنَّا لَجَمِيعٌ حَاذِرُونَ ﴿۵۶﴾
And most surely we are a vigilant multitude (56)
فَأَخْرَجْنَاهُمْ مِنْ جَنَّاتٍ وَعُيُونٍ ﴿۵۷﴾
So We turned them out of gardens and springs, (57)
وَكُنُوزٍ وَمَقَامٍ كَرِيمٍ ﴿۵۸﴾
And treasures and goodly dwellings, (58)
كَذَلِكَ وَأَوْرَثْنَاهَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ ﴿۵۹﴾
Even so. And We gave them as a heritage to the children of Israel (59)
فَأَتْبَعُوهُمْ مُشْرِقِينَ ﴿۶۰﴾
Then they pursued them at sunrise (60)
فَلَمَّا تَرَاءَى الْجَمْعَانِ قَالَ أَصْحَابُ مُوسَى إِنَّا لَمُدْرَكُونَ ﴿۶۱﴾
So when the two hosts saw each other, the companions of Musa cried out: Most surely we are being overtaken (61)
قَالَ كَلَّا إِنَّ مَعِيَ رَبِّي سَيَهْدِينِ ﴿۶۲﴾
He said: By no means; surely my Lord is with me: He will show me a way out (62)
فَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَى مُوسَى أَنِ اضْرِبْ بِعَصَاكَ الْبَحْرَ فَانْفَلَقَ فَكَانَ كُلُّ فِرْقٍ كَالطَّوْدِ الْعَظِيمِ ﴿۶۳﴾
Then We revealed to Musa: Strike the sea with your staff. So it had cloven asunder, and each part was like a huge mound (63)
وَأَزْلَفْنَا ثَمَّ الْآخَرِينَ ﴿۶۴﴾
And We brought near, there, the others (64)
وَأَنْجَيْنَا مُوسَى وَمَنْ مَعَهُ أَجْمَعِينَ ﴿۶۵﴾
And We saved Musa and those with him, all of them (65)
ثُمَّ أَغْرَقْنَا الْآخَرِينَ ﴿۶۶﴾
Then We drowned the others (66)
إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۶۷﴾
Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe (67)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿۶۸﴾
And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful (68)
وَاتْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ نَبَأَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ ﴿۶۹﴾
And recite to them the story of Ibrahim (69)
إِذْ قَالَ لِأَبِيهِ وَقَوْمِهِ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ ﴿۷۰﴾
When he said to his father and his people: What do you worship? (70)
قَالُوا نَعْبُدُ أَصْنَامًا فَنَظَلُّ لَهَا عَاكِفِينَ ﴿۷۱﴾
They said: We worship idols, so we shall be their votaries (71)
قَالَ هَلْ يَسْمَعُونَكُمْ إِذْ تَدْعُونَ ﴿۷۲﴾
He said: Do they hear you when you call? (72)
أَوْ يَنْفَعُونَكُمْ أَوْ يَضُرُّونَ ﴿۷۳﴾
Or do they profit you or cause you harm? (73)
قَالُوا بَلْ وَجَدْنَا آبَاءَنَا كَذَلِكَ يَفْعَلُونَ ﴿۷۴﴾
They said: Nay, we found our fathers doing so (74)
قَالَ أَفَرَأَيْتُمْ مَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْبُدُونَ ﴿۷۵﴾
He said: Have you then considered what you have been worshipping: (75)
أَنْتُمْ وَآبَاؤُكُمُ الْأَقْدَمُونَ ﴿۷۶﴾
You and your ancient sires (76)
فَإِنَّهُمْ عَدُوٌّ لِي إِلَّا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۷۷﴾
Surely they are enemies to me, but not (so) the Lord of the worlds; (77)
الَّذِي خَلَقَنِي فَهُوَ يَهْدِينِ ﴿۷۸﴾
Who created me, then He has shown me the way: (78)
وَالَّذِي هُوَ يُطْعِمُنِي وَيَسْقِينِ ﴿۷۹﴾
And He Who gives me to eat and gives me to drink: (79)
وَإِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِينِ ﴿۸۰﴾
And when I am sick, then He restores me to health (80)
وَالَّذِي يُمِيتُنِي ثُمَّ يُحْيِينِ ﴿۸۱﴾
And He Who will cause me to die, then give me life; (81)
وَالَّذِي أَطْمَعُ أَنْ يَغْفِرَ لِي خَطِيئَتِي يَوْمَ الدِّينِ ﴿۸۲﴾
And Who, I hope, will forgive me my mistakes on the day of judgment (82)
رَبِّ هَبْ لِي حُكْمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَ ﴿۸۳﴾
My Lord: Grant me wisdom, and join me with the good (83)
وَاجْعَلْ لِي لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ فِي الْآخِرِينَ ﴿۸۴﴾
And ordain for me a goodly mention among posterity (84)
وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنْ وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ النَّعِيمِ ﴿۸۵﴾
And make me of the heirs of the garden of bliss (85)
وَاغْفِرْ لِأَبِي إِنَّهُ كَانَ مِنَ الضَّالِّينَ ﴿۸۶﴾
And forgive my father, for surely he is of those who have gone astray; (86)
وَلَا تُخْزِنِي يَوْمَ يُبْعَثُونَ ﴿۸۷﴾
And disgrace me not on the day when they are raised (87)
يَوْمَ لَا يَنْفَعُ مَالٌ وَلَا بَنُونَ ﴿۸۸﴾
The day on which property will not avail, nor sons (88)
إِلَّا مَنْ أَتَى اللَّهَ بِقَلْبٍ سَلِيمٍ ﴿۸۹﴾
Except him who comes to Allah with a heart free (from evil) (89)
وَأُزْلِفَتِ الْجَنَّةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ ﴿۹۰﴾
And the garden shall be brought near for those who guard (against evil), (90)
وَبُرِّزَتِ الْجَحِيمُ لِلْغَاوِينَ ﴿۹۱﴾
And the hell shall be made manifest to the erring ones, (91)
وَقِيلَ لَهُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْبُدُونَ ﴿۹۲﴾
And it shall be said to them: Where are those that you used to worship; (92)
مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ هَلْ يَنْصُرُونَكُمْ أَوْ يَنْتَصِرُونَ ﴿۹۳﴾
Besides Allah? Can they help you or yet help themselves? (93)
فَكُبْكِبُوا فِيهَا هُمْ وَالْغَاوُونَ ﴿۹۴﴾
So they shall be thrown down into it, they and the erring ones, (94)
وَجُنُودُ إِبْلِيسَ أَجْمَعُونَ ﴿۹۵﴾
And the hosts of the Shaitan, all (95)
قَالُوا وَهُمْ فِيهَا يَخْتَصِمُونَ ﴿۹۶﴾
They shall say while they contend therein: (96)
تَاللَّهِ إِنْ كُنَّا لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُبِينٍ ﴿۹۷﴾
By Allah! we were certainly in manifest error, (97)
إِذْ نُسَوِّيكُمْ بِرَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۹۸﴾
When we made you equal to the Lord of the worlds; (98)
وَمَا أَضَلَّنَا إِلَّا الْمُجْرِمُونَ ﴿۹۹﴾
And none but the guilty led us astray; (99)
فَمَا لَنَا مِنْ شَافِعِينَ ﴿۱۰۰﴾
So we have no intercessors, (100)
وَلَا صَدِيقٍ حَمِيمٍ ﴿۱۰۱﴾
Nor a true friend; (101)
فَلَوْ أَنَّ لَنَا كَرَّةً فَنَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۰۲﴾
But if we could but once return, we would be of the believers (102)
إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۰۳﴾
Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe (103)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿۱۰۴﴾
And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful (104)
كَذَّبَتْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ الْمُرْسَلِينَ ﴿۱۰۵﴾
The people of Nuh rejected the messengers (105)
إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ أَخُوهُمْ نُوحٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ﴿۱۰۶﴾
When their brother Nuh said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)? (106)
إِنِّي لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ﴿۱۰۷﴾
Surely I am a faithful messenger to you; (107)
فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ﴿۱۰۸﴾
Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me (108)
وَمَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ إِنْ أَجْرِيَ إِلَّا عَلَى رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۱۰۹﴾
And I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds: (109)
فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ﴿۱۱۰﴾
So guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me (110)
قَالُوا أَنُؤْمِنُ لَكَ وَاتَّبَعَكَ الْأَرْذَلُونَ ﴿۱۱۱﴾
They said: Shall we believe in you while the meanest follow you? (111)
قَالَ وَمَا عِلْمِي بِمَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ ﴿۱۱۲﴾
He said: And what knowledge have I of what they do? (112)
إِنْ حِسَابُهُمْ إِلَّا عَلَى رَبِّي لَوْ تَشْعُرُونَ ﴿۱۱۳﴾
Their account is only with my Lord, if you could perceive (113)
وَمَا أَنَا بِطَارِدِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۱۴﴾
And I am not going to drive away the believers; (114)
إِنْ أَنَا إِلَّا نَذِيرٌ مُبِينٌ ﴿۱۱۵﴾
I am naught but a plain warner (115)
قَالُوا لَئِنْ لَمْ تَنْتَهِ يَا نُوحُ لَتَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْمَرْجُومِينَ ﴿۱۱۶﴾
They said: If you desist not, O Nuh, you shall most certainly be of those stoned to death (116)
قَالَ رَبِّ إِنَّ قَوْمِي كَذَّبُونِ ﴿۱۱۷﴾
He said: My Lord! Surely my people give me the lie! (117)
فَافْتَحْ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَهُمْ فَتْحًا وَنَجِّنِي وَمَنْ مَعِيَ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۱۸﴾
Therefore judge Thou between me and them with a (just) judgment, and deliver me and those who are with me of the believers (118)
فَأَنْجَيْنَاهُ وَمَنْ مَعَهُ فِي الْفُلْكِ الْمَشْحُونِ ﴿۱۱۹﴾
So We delivered him and those with him in the laden ark (119)
ثُمَّ أَغْرَقْنَا بَعْدُ الْبَاقِينَ ﴿۱۲۰﴾
Then We drowned the rest afterwards (120)
إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۲۱﴾
Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe (121)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿۱۲۲﴾
And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful (122)
كَذَّبَتْ عَادٌ الْمُرْسَلِينَ ﴿۱۲۳﴾
Ad gave the lie to the messengers (123)
إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ أَخُوهُمْ هُودٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ﴿۱۲۴﴾
When their brother Hud said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)? (124)
إِنِّي لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ﴿۱۲۵﴾
Surely I am a faithful messenger to you; (125)
فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ﴿۱۲۶﴾
Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me: (126)
وَمَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ إِنْ أَجْرِيَ إِلَّا عَلَى رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۱۲۷﴾
And I do not ask you any reward for it; surely my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds (127)
أَتَبْنُونَ بِكُلِّ رِيعٍ آيَةً تَعْبَثُونَ ﴿۱۲۸﴾
Do you build on every height a monument? Vain is it that you do: (128)
وَتَتَّخِذُونَ مَصَانِعَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَخْلُدُونَ ﴿۱۲۹﴾
And you make strong fortresses that perhaps you may (129)
وَإِذَا بَطَشْتُمْ بَطَشْتُمْ جَبَّارِينَ ﴿۱۳۰﴾
And when you lay hands (on men) you lay hands (like) tyrants; (130)
فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ﴿۱۳۱﴾
So guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me (131)
وَاتَّقُوا الَّذِي أَمَدَّكُمْ بِمَا تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿۱۳۲﴾
And be careful of (your duty to) Him Who has given you abundance of what you know (132)
أَمَدَّكُمْ بِأَنْعَامٍ وَبَنِينَ ﴿۱۳۳﴾
He has given you abundance of cattle and children (133)
وَجَنَّاتٍ وَعُيُونٍ ﴿۱۳۴﴾
And gardens and fountains; (134)
إِنِّي أَخَافُ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ ﴿۱۳۵﴾
Surely I fear for you the chastisement of a grievous day (135)
قَالُوا سَوَاءٌ عَلَيْنَا أَوَعَظْتَ أَمْ لَمْ تَكُنْ مِنَ الْوَاعِظِينَ ﴿۱۳۶﴾
They said: It is the same to us whether you admonish or are not one of the admonishers (136)
إِنْ هَذَا إِلَّا خُلُقُ الْأَوَّلِينَ ﴿۱۳۷﴾
This is naught but a custom of the ancients; (137)
وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمُعَذَّبِينَ ﴿۱۳۸﴾
And we are not going to be punished (138)
فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَأَهْلَكْنَاهُمْ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۳۹﴾
So they gave him the lie, then We destroyed them. Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe (139)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿۱۴۰﴾
And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful (140)
كَذَّبَتْ ثَمُودُ الْمُرْسَلِينَ ﴿۱۴۱﴾
Samood gave the lie to the messengers (141)
إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ أَخُوهُمْ صَالِحٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ﴿۱۴۲﴾
When their brother Salih said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)? (142)
إِنِّي لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ﴿۱۴۳﴾
Surely I am a faithful messenger to you (143)
فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ﴿۱۴۴﴾
Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me: (144)
وَمَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ إِنْ أَجْرِيَ إِلَّا عَلَى رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۱۴۵﴾
And I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds: (145)
أَتُتْرَكُونَ فِي مَا هَاهُنَا آمِنِينَ ﴿۱۴۶﴾
Will you be left secure in what is here; (146)
فِي جَنَّاتٍ وَعُيُونٍ ﴿۱۴۷﴾
In gardens and fountains, (147)
وَزُرُوعٍ وَنَخْلٍ طَلْعُهَا هَضِيمٌ ﴿۱۴۸﴾
And cornfields and palm-trees having fine spadices? (148)
وَتَنْحِتُونَ مِنَ الْجِبَالِ بُيُوتًا فَارِهِينَ ﴿۱۴۹﴾
And you hew houses out of the mountains exultingly; (149)
فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ﴿۱۵۰﴾
Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me; (150)
وَلَا تُطِيعُوا أَمْرَ الْمُسْرِفِينَ ﴿۱۵۱﴾
And do not obey the bidding of the extravagant, (151)
الَّذِينَ يُفْسِدُونَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا يُصْلِحُونَ ﴿۱۵۲﴾
Who make mischief in the land and do not act aright (152)
قَالُوا إِنَّمَا أَنْتَ مِنَ الْمُسَحَّرِينَ ﴿۱۵۳﴾
They said: You are only of the deluded ones; (153)
مَا أَنْتَ إِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِثْلُنَا فَأْتِ بِآيَةٍ إِنْ كُنْتَ مِنَ الصَّادِقِينَ ﴿۱۵۴﴾
You are naught but a mortal like ourselves; so bring a sign if you are one of the truthful (154)
قَالَ هَذِهِ نَاقَةٌ لَهَا شِرْبٌ وَلَكُمْ شِرْبُ يَوْمٍ مَعْلُومٍ ﴿۱۵۵﴾
He said: This is a she-camel; she shall have her portion of water, and you have your portion of water on an appointed time; (155)
وَلَا تَمَسُّوهَا بِسُوءٍ فَيَأْخُذَكُمْ عَذَابُ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ ﴿۱۵۶﴾
And do not touch her with evil, lest the punishment of a grievous day should overtake you (156)
فَعَقَرُوهَا فَأَصْبَحُوا نَادِمِينَ ﴿۱۵۷﴾
But they hamstrung her, then regretted; (157)
فَأَخَذَهُمُ الْعَذَابُ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۵۸﴾
So the punishment overtook them. Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe (158)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿۱۵۹﴾
And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful (159)
كَذَّبَتْ قَوْمُ لُوطٍ الْمُرْسَلِينَ ﴿۱۶۰﴾
The people of Lut gave the lie to the messengers (160)
إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ أَخُوهُمْ لُوطٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ﴿۱۶۱﴾
When their brother Lut said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)? (161)
إِنِّي لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ﴿۱۶۲﴾
Surely I am a faithful messenger to you; (162)
فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ﴿۱۶۳﴾
Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me: (163)
وَمَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ إِنْ أَجْرِيَ إِلَّا عَلَى رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۱۶۴﴾
And I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds; (164)
أَتَأْتُونَ الذُّكْرَانَ مِنَ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۱۶۵﴾
What! do you come to the males from among the creatures (165)
وَتَذَرُونَ مَا خَلَقَ لَكُمْ رَبُّكُمْ مِنْ أَزْوَاجِكُمْ بَلْ أَنْتُمْ قَوْمٌ عَادُونَ ﴿۱۶۶﴾
And leave what your Lord has created for you of your wives? Nay, you are a people exceeding limits (166)
قَالُوا لَئِنْ لَمْ تَنْتَهِ يَا لُوطُ لَتَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْمُخْرَجِينَ ﴿۱۶۷﴾
They said: If you desist not, O Lut! you shall surely be of those who are expelled (167)
قَالَ إِنِّي لِعَمَلِكُمْ مِنَ الْقَالِينَ ﴿۱۶۸﴾
He said: Surely I am of those who utterly abhor your (168)
رَبِّ نَجِّنِي وَأَهْلِي مِمَّا يَعْمَلُونَ ﴿۱۶۹﴾
My Lord ! deliver me and my followers from what they do (169)
فَنَجَّيْنَاهُ وَأَهْلَهُ أَجْمَعِينَ ﴿۱۷۰﴾
So We delivered him and his followers all, (170)
إِلَّا عَجُوزًا فِي الْغَابِرِينَ ﴿۱۷۱﴾
Except an old woman, among those who remained behind (171)
ثُمَّ دَمَّرْنَا الْآخَرِينَ ﴿۱۷۲﴾
Then We utterly destroyed the others (172)
وَأَمْطَرْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ مَطَرًا فَسَاءَ مَطَرُ الْمُنْذَرِينَ ﴿۱۷۳﴾
And We rained down upon them a rain, and evil was the rain on those warned (173)
إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۷۴﴾
Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe (174)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿۱۷۵﴾
And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful (175)
كَذَّبَ أَصْحَابُ الْأَيْكَةِ الْمُرْسَلِينَ ﴿۱۷۶﴾
The dwellers of the thicket gave the lie to the messengers (176)
إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ شُعَيْبٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ﴿۱۷۷﴾
When Shu'aib said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)? (177)
إِنِّي لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ﴿۱۷۸﴾
Surely I am a faithful messenger to you; (178)
فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ﴿۱۷۹﴾
Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me: (179)
وَمَا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ إِنْ أَجْرِيَ إِلَّا عَلَى رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۱۸۰﴾
And I do not ask you any reward for it, my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds; (180)
أَوْفُوا الْكَيْلَ وَلَا تَكُونُوا مِنَ الْمُخْسِرِينَ ﴿۱۸۱﴾
Give a full measure and be not of those who diminish; (181)
وَزِنُوا بِالْقِسْطَاسِ الْمُسْتَقِيمِ ﴿۱۸۲﴾
And weigh (things) with a right balance, (182)
وَلَا تَبْخَسُوا النَّاسَ أَشْيَاءَهُمْ وَلَا تَعْثَوْا فِي الْأَرْضِ مُفْسِدِينَ ﴿۱۸۳﴾
And do not wrong men of their things, and do not act corruptly in the earth, making mischief (183)
وَاتَّقُوا الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ وَالْجِبِلَّةَ الْأَوَّلِينَ ﴿۱۸۴﴾
And guard against (the punishment of) Him who created you and the former nations (184)
قَالُوا إِنَّمَا أَنْتَ مِنَ الْمُسَحَّرِينَ ﴿۱۸۵﴾
They said: You are only of those deluded; (185)
وَمَا أَنْتَ إِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِثْلُنَا وَإِنْ نَظُنُّكَ لَمِنَ الْكَاذِبِينَ ﴿۱۸۶﴾
And you are naught but a mortal like ourselves, and we know you to be certainly of the liars (186)
فَأَسْقِطْ عَلَيْنَا كِسَفًا مِنَ السَّمَاءِ إِنْ كُنْتَ مِنَ الصَّادِقِينَ ﴿۱۸۷﴾
Therefore cause a portion of the heaven to come down upon us, if you are one of the truthful (187)
قَالَ رَبِّي أَعْلَمُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ ﴿۱۸۸﴾
He said: My Lord knows best what you do (188)
فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَأَخَذَهُمْ عَذَابُ يَوْمِ الظُّلَّةِ إِنَّهُ كَانَ عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ ﴿۱۸۹﴾
But they called him a liar, so the punishment of the day of covering overtook them; surely it was the punishment of a grievous day (189)
إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۹۰﴾
Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe (190)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ﴿۱۹۱﴾
And most surely your Lord is Mighty, the Merciful (191)
وَإِنَّهُ لَتَنْزِيلُ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۱۹۲﴾
And most surely this is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds (192)
نَزَلَ بِهِ الرُّوحُ الْأَمِينُ ﴿۱۹۳﴾
The Faithful Spirit has descended with it, (193)
عَلَى قَلْبِكَ لِتَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُنْذِرِينَ ﴿۱۹۴﴾
Upon your heart that you may be of the warners (194)
بِلِسَانٍ عَرَبِيٍّ مُبِينٍ ﴿۱۹۵﴾
In plain Arabic language (195)
وَإِنَّهُ لَفِي زُبُرِ الْأَوَّلِينَ ﴿۱۹۶﴾
And most surely the same is in the scriptures of the ancients (196)
أَوَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُمْ آيَةً أَنْ يَعْلَمَهُ عُلَمَاءُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ ﴿۱۹۷﴾
Is it not a sign to them that the learned men of the Israelites know it? (197)
وَلَوْ نَزَّلْنَاهُ عَلَى بَعْضِ الْأَعْجَمِينَ ﴿۱۹۸﴾
And if we had revealed it to any of the foreigners (198)
فَقَرَأَهُ عَلَيْهِمْ مَا كَانُوا بِهِ مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۹۹﴾
So that he should have recited it to them, they would not have believed therein (199)
كَذَلِكَ سَلَكْنَاهُ فِي قُلُوبِ الْمُجْرِمِينَ ﴿۲۰۰﴾
Thus have We caused it to enter into the hearts of the guilty (200)
لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِ حَتَّى يَرَوُا الْعَذَابَ الْأَلِيمَ ﴿۲۰۱﴾
They will not believe in it until they see the painful punishment (201)
فَيَأْتِيَهُمْ بَغْتَةً وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ ﴿۲۰۲﴾
And it shall come to them all of a sudden, while they shall not perceive; (202)
فَيَقُولُوا هَلْ نَحْنُ مُنْظَرُونَ ﴿۲۰۳﴾
Then they will say: Shall we be respited? (203)
أَفَبِعَذَابِنَا يَسْتَعْجِلُونَ ﴿۲۰۴﴾
What! do they still seek to hasten on Our punishment? (204)
أَفَرَأَيْتَ إِنْ مَتَّعْنَاهُمْ سِنِينَ ﴿۲۰۵﴾
Have you then considered if We let them enjoy themselves for years, (205)
ثُمَّ جَاءَهُمْ مَا كَانُوا يُوعَدُونَ ﴿۲۰۶﴾
Then there comes to them that with which they are threatened, (206)
مَا أَغْنَى عَنْهُمْ مَا كَانُوا يُمَتَّعُونَ ﴿۲۰۷﴾
That which they were made to enjoy shall not avail them? (207)
وَمَا أَهْلَكْنَا مِنْ قَرْيَةٍ إِلَّا لَهَا مُنْذِرُونَ ﴿۲۰۸﴾
And We did not destroy any town but it had (its) warners, (208)
ذِكْرَى وَمَا كُنَّا ظَالِمِينَ ﴿۲۰۹﴾
To remind, and We are never unjust (209)
وَمَا تَنَزَّلَتْ بِهِ الشَّيَاطِينُ ﴿۲۱۰﴾
And the Shaitans have not come down with it (210)
وَمَا يَنْبَغِي لَهُمْ وَمَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ ﴿۲۱۱﴾
And it behoves them not, and they have not the power to do (it) (211)
إِنَّهُمْ عَنِ السَّمْعِ لَمَعْزُولُونَ ﴿۲۱۲﴾
Most surely they are far removed from the hearing of it (212)
فَلَا تَدْعُ مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَهًا آخَرَ فَتَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُعَذَّبِينَ ﴿۲۱۳﴾
So call not upon another god with Allah, lest you be of those who are punished (213)
وَأَنْذِرْ عَشِيرَتَكَ الْأَقْرَبِينَ ﴿۲۱۴﴾
And warn your nearest relations, (214)
وَاخْفِضْ جَنَاحَكَ لِمَنِ اتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۲۱۵﴾
And be kind to him who follows you of the believers (215)
فَإِنْ عَصَوْكَ فَقُلْ إِنِّي بَرِيءٌ مِمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ ﴿۲۱۶﴾
But if they disobey you, then say: Surely I am clear of what you do (216)
وَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى الْعَزِيزِ الرَّحِيمِ ﴿۲۱۷﴾
And rely on the Mighty, the Merciful, (217)
الَّذِي يَرَاكَ حِينَ تَقُومُ ﴿۲۱۸﴾
Who sees you when you stand up (218)
وَتَقَلُّبَكَ فِي السَّاجِدِينَ ﴿۲۱۹﴾
And your turning over and over among those who prostrate themselves before Allah (219)
إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ ﴿۲۲۰﴾
Surely He is the Hearing, the Knowing (220)
هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ عَلَى مَنْ تَنَزَّلُ الشَّيَاطِينُ ﴿۲۲۱﴾
Shall I inform you (of him) upon whom the Shaitans descend? (221)
تَنَزَّلُ عَلَى كُلِّ أَفَّاكٍ أَثِيمٍ ﴿۲۲۲﴾
They descend upon every lying, sinful one, (222)
يُلْقُونَ السَّمْعَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ كَاذِبُونَ ﴿۲۲۳﴾
They incline their ears, and most of them are liars (223)
وَالشُّعَرَاءُ يَتَّبِعُهُمُ الْغَاوُونَ ﴿۲۲۴﴾
And as to the poets, those who go astray follow them (224)
أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّهُمْ فِي كُلِّ وَادٍ يَهِيمُونَ ﴿۲۲۵﴾
Do you not see that they wander about bewildered in every valley? (225)
وَأَنَّهُمْ يَقُولُونَ مَا لَا يَفْعَلُونَ ﴿۲۲۶﴾
And that they say that which they do not do, (226)
إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَذَكَرُوا اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا وَانْتَصَرُوا مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا ظُلِمُوا وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ ﴿۲۲۷﴾
Except those who believe and do good and remember Allah much, and defend themselves after they are oppressed; and they who act unjustly shall know to what final place of turning they shall turn back (227)
Sura 27: AL-NAML (THE ANT)
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
طس تِلْكَ آيَاتُ الْقُرْآنِ وَكِتَابٍ مُبِينٍ ﴿۱﴾
Ta Sin! These are the verses of the Quran and the Book that makes (things) clear (1)
هُدًى وَبُشْرَى لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۲﴾
A guidance and good news for the believers, (2)
الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ بِالْآخِرَةِ هُمْ يُوقِنُونَ ﴿۳﴾
Who keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, and of the hereafter, they are sure (3)
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْآخِرَةِ زَيَّنَّا لَهُمْ أَعْمَالَهُمْ فَهُمْ يَعْمَهُونَ ﴿۴﴾
As to those who do not believe in the hereafter, We have surely made their deeds fair-seeming to them, but they blindly wander on (4)
أُولَئِكَ الَّذِينَ لَهُمْ سُوءُ الْعَذَابِ وَهُمْ فِي الْآخِرَةِ هُمُ الْأَخْسَرُونَ ﴿۵﴾
These are they who shall have an evil punishment, and in the hereafter they shall be the greatest losers (5)
وَإِنَّكَ لَتُلَقَّى الْقُرْآنَ مِنْ لَدُنْ حَكِيمٍ عَلِيمٍ ﴿۶﴾
And most surely you are made to receive the Quran from the Wise, the Knowing Allah (6)
إِذْ قَالَ مُوسَى لِأَهْلِهِ إِنِّي آنَسْتُ نَارًا سَآتِيكُمْ مِنْهَا بِخَبَرٍ أَوْ آتِيكُمْ بِشِهَابٍ قَبَسٍ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَصْطَلُونَ ﴿۷﴾
When Musa said to his family: Surely I see fire; I will bring to you from it some news, or I will bring to you therefrom a burning firebrand so that you may warm yourselves (7)
فَلَمَّا جَاءَهَا نُودِيَ أَنْ بُورِكَ مَنْ فِي النَّارِ وَمَنْ حَوْلَهَا وَسُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۸﴾
So when he came to it a voice was uttered saying: Blessed is Whoever is in the fire and whatever is about it; and glory be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds; (8)
يَا مُوسَى إِنَّهُ أَنَا اللَّهُ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ ﴿۹﴾
O Musa! surely I am Allah, the Mighty, the Wise; (9)
وَأَلْقِ عَصَاكَ فَلَمَّا رَآهَا تَهْتَزُّ كَأَنَّهَا جَانٌّ وَلَّى مُدْبِرًا وَلَمْ يُعَقِّبْ يَا مُوسَى لَا تَخَفْ إِنِّي لَا يَخَافُ لَدَيَّ الْمُرْسَلُونَ ﴿۱۰﴾
And cast down your staff. So when he saw it in motion as if it were a serpent, he turned back retreating and did not return: O Musa! fear not; surely the messengers shall not fear in My presence; (10)
إِلَّا مَنْ ظَلَمَ ثُمَّ بَدَّلَ حُسْنًا بَعْدَ سُوءٍ فَإِنِّي غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ ﴿۱۱﴾
Neither he who has been unjust, then he does good instead after evil, for surely I am the Forgiving, the Merciful: (11)
وَأَدْخِلْ يَدَكَ فِي جَيْبِكَ تَخْرُجْ بَيْضَاءَ مِنْ غَيْرِ سُوءٍ فِي تِسْعِ آيَاتٍ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ وَقَوْمِهِ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا قَوْمًا فَاسِقِينَ ﴿۱۲﴾
And enter your hand into the opening of your bosom, it shall come forth white without evil; among nine signs to Firon and his people, surely they are a transgressing people (12)
فَلَمَّا جَاءَتْهُمْ آيَاتُنَا مُبْصِرَةً قَالُوا هَذَا سِحْرٌ مُبِينٌ ﴿۱۳﴾
So when Our clear signs came to them, they said: This is clear enchantment (13)
وَجَحَدُوا بِهَا وَاسْتَيْقَنَتْهَا أَنْفُسُهُمْ ظُلْمًا وَعُلُوًّا فَانْظُرْ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ الْمُفْسِدِينَ ﴿۱۴﴾
And they denied them unjustly and proudly while their soul had been convinced of them; consider, then how was the end of the mischief-makers (14)
وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا دَاوُودَ وَسُلَيْمَانَ عِلْمًا وَقَالَا الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي فَضَّلَنَا عَلَى كَثِيرٍ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿۱۵﴾
And certainly We gave knowledge to Dawood and Sulaiman, and they both said: Praise be to Allah, Who has made us to excel many of His believing servants (15)
وَوَرِثَ سُلَيْمَانُ دَاوُودَ وَقَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ عُلِّمْنَا مَنْطِقَ الطَّيْرِ وَأُوتِينَا مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ إِنَّ هَذَا لَهُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْمُبِينُ ﴿۱۶﴾
And Sulaiman was Dawood's heir, and he said: O men! we have been taught the language of birds, and we have been given all things; most surely this is manifest grace (16)
وَحُشِرَ لِسُلَيْمَانَ جُنُودُهُ مِنَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنْسِ وَالطَّيْرِ فَهُمْ يُوزَعُونَ ﴿۱۷﴾
And his hosts of the jinn and the men and the birds were gathered to him, and they were formed into groups (17)
حَتَّى إِذَا أَتَوْا عَلَى وَادِ النَّمْلِ قَالَتْ نَمْلَةٌ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّمْلُ ادْخُلُوا مَسَاكِنَكُمْ لَا يَحْطِمَنَّكُمْ سُلَيْمَانُ وَجُنُودُهُ وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ ﴿۱۸﴾
Until when they came to the valley of the Naml, a Namlite said: O Naml! enter your houses, (that) Sulaiman and his hosts may not crush you while they do not know (18)
فَتَبَسَّمَ ضَاحِكًا مِنْ قَوْلِهَا وَقَالَ رَبِّ أَوْزِعْنِي أَنْ أَشْكُرَ نِعْمَتَكَ الَّتِي أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيَّ وَعَلَى وَالِدَيَّ وَأَنْ أَعْمَلَ صَالِحًا تَرْضَاهُ وَأَدْخِلْنِي بِرَحْمَتِكَ فِي عِبَادِكَ الصَّالِحِينَ ﴿۱۹﴾
So he smiled, wondering at her word, and said: My Lord! grant me that I should be grateful for Thy favor which Thou hast bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I should do good such as Thou art pleased with, and make me enter, by Thy mercy, into Thy servants, the good ones (19)
وَتَفَقَّدَ الطَّيْرَ فَقَالَ مَا لِيَ لَا أَرَى الْهُدْهُدَ أَمْ كَانَ مِنَ الْغَائِبِينَ ﴿۲۰﴾
And he reviewed the birds, then said: How is it I see not the hoopoe or is it that he is of the absentees? (20)
لَأُعَذِّبَنَّهُ عَذَابًا شَدِيدًا أَوْ لَأَذْبَحَنَّهُ أَوْ لَيَأْتِيَنِّي بِسُلْطَانٍ مُبِينٍ ﴿۲۱﴾
I will most certainly punish him with a severe punishment, or kill him, or he shall bring to me a clear plea (21)
فَمَكَثَ غَيْرَ بَعِيدٍ فَقَالَ أَحَطْتُ بِمَا لَمْ تُحِطْ بِهِ وَجِئْتُكَ مِنْ سَبَإٍ بِنَبَإٍ يَقِينٍ ﴿۲۲﴾
And he tarried not long, then said: I comprehend that which you do not comprehend and I have brought to you a sure information from Sheba (22)
إِنِّي وَجَدْتُ امْرَأَةً تَمْلِكُهُمْ وَأُوتِيَتْ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَلَهَا عَرْشٌ عَظِيمٌ ﴿۲۳﴾
Surely I found a woman ruling over them, and she has been given abundance and she has a mighty throne: (23)
وَجَدْتُهَا وَقَوْمَهَا يَسْجُدُونَ لِلشَّمْسِ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ وَزَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَعْمَالَهُمْ فَصَدَّهُمْ عَنِ السَّبِيلِ فَهُمْ لَا يَهْتَدُونَ ﴿۲۴﴾
I found her and her people adoring the sun instead of Allah, and the Shaitan has made their deeds fair-seeming to them and thus turned them from the way, so they do not go aright (24)
أَلَّا يَسْجُدُوا لِلَّهِ الَّذِي يُخْرِجُ الْخَبْءَ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا تُخْفُونَ وَمَا تُعْلِنُونَ ﴿۲۵﴾
That they do not make obeisance to Allah, Who brings forth what is hidden in the heavens and the earth and knows what you hide and what you make manifest: (25)
اللَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ ﴿۲۶﴾
Allah, there is no god but He: He is the Lord of mighty power (26)
قَالَ سَنَنْظُرُ أَصَدَقْتَ أَمْ كُنْتَ مِنَ الْكَاذِبِينَ ﴿۲۷﴾
He said: We will see whether you have told the truth or whether you are of the liars: (27)
اذْهَبْ بِكِتَابِي هَذَا فَأَلْقِهْ إِلَيْهِمْ ثُمَّ تَوَلَّ عَنْهُمْ فَانْظُرْ مَاذَا يَرْجِعُونَ ﴿۲۸﴾
Take this my letter and hand it over to them, then turn away from them and see what (answer) they return (28)
قَالَتْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْمَلَأُ إِنِّي أُلْقِيَ إِلَيَّ كِتَابٌ كَرِيمٌ ﴿۲۹﴾
She said: O chief! surely an honorable letter has been delivered to me (29)
إِنَّهُ مِنْ سُلَيْمَانَ وَإِنَّهُ بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ ﴿۳۰﴾
Surely it is from Sulaiman, and surely it is in the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful; (30)
أَلَّا تَعْلُوا عَلَيَّ وَأْتُونِي مُسْلِمِينَ ﴿۳۱﴾
Saying: exalt not yourselves against me and come to me in submission (31)
قَالَتْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْمَلَأُ أَفْتُونِي فِي أَمْرِي مَا كُنْتُ قَاطِعَةً أَمْرًا حَتَّى تَشْهَدُونِ ﴿۳۲﴾
She said: O chiefs! give me advice respecting my affair: I never decide an affair until you are in my presence (32)
قَالُوا نَحْنُ أُولُو قُوَّةٍ وَأُولُو بَأْسٍ شَدِيدٍ وَالْأَمْرُ إِلَيْكِ فَانْظُرِي مَاذَا تَأْمُرِينَ ﴿۳۳﴾
They said: We are possessors of strength and possessors of mighty prowess, and the command is yours, therefore see what you will command (33)
قَالَتْ إِنَّ الْمُلُوكَ إِذَا دَخَلُوا قَرْيَةً أَفْسَدُوهَا وَجَعَلُوا أَعِزَّةَ أَهْلِهَا أَذِلَّةً وَكَذَلِكَ يَفْعَلُونَ ﴿۳۴﴾
She said: Surely the kings, when they enter a town, ruin it and make the noblest of its people to be low, and thus they (always) do; (34)
وَإِنِّي مُرْسِلَةٌ إِلَيْهِمْ بِهَدِيَّةٍ فَنَاظِرَةٌ بِمَ يَرْجِعُ الْمُرْسَلُونَ ﴿۳۵﴾
And surely I am going to send a present to them, and shall wait to see what (answer) do the messengers bring back (35)
فَلَمَّا جَاءَ سُلَيْمَانَ قَالَ أَتُمِدُّونَنِ بِمَالٍ فَمَا آتَانِيَ اللَّهُ خَيْرٌ مِمَّا آتَاكُمْ بَلْ أَنْتُمْ بِهَدِيَّتِكُمْ تَفْرَحُونَ ﴿۳۶﴾
So when he came to Sulaiman, he said: What! will you help me with wealth? But what Allah has given me is better than what He has given you. Nay, you are exultant because of your present; (36)
ارْجِعْ إِلَيْهِمْ فَلَنَأْتِيَنَّهُمْ بِجُنُودٍ لَا قِبَلَ لَهُمْ بِهَا وَلَنُخْرِجَنَّهُمْ مِنْهَا أَذِلَّةً وَهُمْ صَاغِرُونَ ﴿۳۷﴾
Go back to them, so we will most certainly come to them with hosts which they shall have no power to oppose, and we will most certainly expel them therefrom in abasement, and they shall be in a state of ignominy (37)
قَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا الْمَلَأُ أَيُّكُمْ يَأْتِينِي بِعَرْشِهَا قَبْلَ أَنْ يَأْتُونِي مُسْلِمِينَ ﴿۳۸﴾
He said: O chiefs! which of you can bring to me her throne before they come to me in submission? (38)
قَالَ عِفْرِيتٌ مِنَ الْجِنِّ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَقُومَ مِنْ مَقَامِكَ وَإِنِّي عَلَيْهِ لَقَوِيٌّ أَمِينٌ ﴿۳۹﴾
One audacious among the jinn said: I will bring it to you before you rise up from your place; and most surely I am strong (and) trusty for it (39)
قَالَ الَّذِي عِنْدَهُ عِلْمٌ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَرْتَدَّ إِلَيْكَ طَرْفُكَ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ مُسْتَقِرًّا عِنْدَهُ قَالَ هَذَا مِنْ فَضْلِ رَبِّي لِيَبْلُوَنِي أَأَشْكُرُ أَمْ أَكْفُرُ وَمَنْ شَكَرَ فَإِنَّمَا يَشْكُرُ لِنَفْسِهِ وَمَنْ كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ رَبِّي غَنِيٌّ كَرِيمٌ ﴿۴۰﴾
One who had the knowledge of the Book said: I will bring it to you in the twinkling of an eye. Then when he saw it settled beside him, he said: This is of the grace of my Lord that He may try me whether I am grateful or ungrateful; and whoever is grateful, he is grateful only for his own soul, and whoever is ungrateful, then surely my Lord is Self-sufficient, Honored (40)
قَالَ نَكِّرُوا لَهَا عَرْشَهَا نَنْظُرْ أَتَهْتَدِي أَمْ تَكُونُ مِنَ الَّذِينَ لَا يَهْتَدُونَ ﴿۴۱﴾
He said: Alter her throne for her, we will see whether she follows the right way or is of those who do not go aright (41)
فَلَمَّا جَاءَتْ قِيلَ أَهَكَذَا عَرْشُكِ قَالَتْ كَأَنَّهُ هُوَ وَأُوتِينَا الْعِلْمَ مِنْ قَبْلِهَا وَكُنَّا مُسْلِمِينَ ﴿۴۲﴾
So when she came, it was said: Is your throne like this? She said: It is as it were the same, and we were given the knowledge before it, and we were submissive (42)
وَصَدَّهَا مَا كَانَتْ تَعْبُدُ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ إِنَّهَا كَانَتْ مِنْ قَوْمٍ كَافِرِينَ ﴿۴۳﴾
And what she worshipped besides Allah prevented her, surely she was of an unbelieving people (43)
قِيلَ لَهَا ادْخُلِي الصَّرْحَ فَلَمَّا رَأَتْهُ حَسِبَتْهُ لُجَّةً وَكَشَفَتْ عَنْ سَاقَيْهَا قَالَ إِنَّهُ صَرْحٌ مُمَرَّدٌ مِنْ قَوَارِيرَ قَالَتْ رَبِّ إِنِّي ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي وَأَسْلَمْتُ مَعَ سُلَيْمَانَ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۴۴﴾
It was said to her: Enter the palace; but when she saw it she deemed it to be a great expanse of water, and bared her legs. He said: Surely it is a palace made smooth with glass. She said: My Lord! surely I have been unjust to myself, and I submit with Sulaiman to Allah, the Lord of the worlds (44)
وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا إِلَى ثَمُودَ أَخَاهُمْ صَالِحًا أَنِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ فَإِذَا هُمْ فَرِيقَانِ يَخْتَصِمُونَ ﴿۴۵﴾
And certainly We sent to Samood their brother Salih, saying: Serve Allah; and lo! they became two sects quarrelling with each other (45)
قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ لِمَ تَسْتَعْجِلُونَ بِالسَّيِّئَةِ قَبْلَ الْحَسَنَةِ لَوْلَا تَسْتَغْفِرُونَ اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ ﴿۴۶﴾
He said: O my people! why do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully? (46)
قَالُوا اطَّيَّرْنَا بِكَ وَبِمَنْ مَعَكَ قَالَ طَائِرُكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ بَلْ أَنْتُمْ قَوْمٌ تُفْتَنُونَ ﴿۴۷﴾
They said: We have met with ill luck on account of you and on account of those with you. He said: The cause of your evil fortune is with Allah; nay, you are a people who are tried (47)
وَكَانَ فِي الْمَدِينَةِ تِسْعَةُ رَهْطٍ يُفْسِدُونَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا يُصْلِحُونَ ﴿۴۸﴾
And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and did not act aright (48)
قَالُوا تَقَاسَمُوا بِاللَّهِ لَنُبَيِّتَنَّهُ وَأَهْلَهُ ثُمَّ لَنَقُولَنَّ لِوَلِيِّهِ مَا شَهِدْنَا مَهْلِكَ أَهْلِهِ وَإِنَّا لَصَادِقُونَ ﴿۴۹﴾
They said: Swear to each other by Allah that we will certainly make a sudden attack on him and his family by night, then we will say to his heir: We did not witness the destruction of his family, and we are most surely truthful (49)
وَمَكَرُوا مَكْرًا وَمَكَرْنَا مَكْرًا وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ ﴿۵۰﴾
And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan while they perceived not (50)
فَانْظُرْ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ مَكْرِهِمْ أَنَّا دَمَّرْنَاهُمْ وَقَوْمَهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ ﴿۵۱﴾
See, then, how was the end of their plan that We destroyed them and their people, all (of them) (51)
فَتِلْكَ بُيُوتُهُمْ خَاوِيَةً بِمَا ظَلَمُوا إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً لِقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿۵۲﴾
So those are their houses fallen down because they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know (52)
وَأَنْجَيْنَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَكَانُوا يَتَّقُونَ ﴿۵۳﴾
.And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil) (53)
وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ أَتَأْتُونَ الْفَاحِشَةَ وَأَنْتُمْ تُبْصِرُونَ ﴿۵۴﴾
And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do you commit indecency while you see? (54)
أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِنْ دُونِ النِّسَاءِ بَلْ أَنْتُمْ قَوْمٌ تَجْهَلُونَ ﴿۵۵﴾
What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly (55)
